Reading comprehension issues/problems
« on: September 13, 2009, 09:23:46 AM »
I've just realized something about my undergraduate philosophy training.  It is causing me to reach too far in the reading comprehension.

For example, I often abstract and over analyze answer choices and convince myself, and even find evidence of more than one answer for the correct answer choice.  Thinking 'outside the box' is hurting me, how do I learn to stay inside the strict confines of the passage?  Is this just a matter of practice and time?  I've only been studying a few days...

Has anyone else had this problem?

Before you pick an answer, make sure you can put your finger on the sentence where that answer is explicitly supported.  If you can't put your finger on it, it's probably not correct.
